The number one reason to join is to help make a difference in your child's education!
By joining, you are helping the PTSA go above and beyond what the Wake County Public School System school budget provides for our school and our children.
Some things that you may think are provided by the school system are actually funded either partially or entirely by your PTSA membership dues, donations and fundraising events.
We honestly can not provide these special opportunities without parent and guardian involvement whether that be financial, through your membership or by volunteering your time.
Here are a few examples of what the PTSA plans to provide funding for at Alston Ridge Middle School...
Student Enrichment Events
Parent Educational Events
School Wide Visiting Authors
Character Education and Student Recognition
Reflections Art Program and Ceremony
Staff Appreciation Events
Fun Activities for Both Students and Families
8th Grade Graduation, Celebration and Recognition Events
Fundraising Efforts to Support Our School Staff, Teachers and Administration

Some myths about joining the PTSA....
Myth: You have to attend PTSA meetings.
Truth: While we welcome all members to our general PTSA meetings and we try to have them at convenient times for busy families, meeting attendance is not a requirement of membership!
Myth: You have to volunteer time and participate on committees.
Truth: We welcome any and all volunteers but volunteering your time is not a requirement of PTSA membership!
However, if you want to be in the know and get exclusive information and opportunities for your child your membership is required.
